With dishes of thick, sage-seasoned veal chops and house-made pasta on its tables, it's no wonder that the dining room at Da Noi gets crowded. The Midtown spot is usually "packed with devotees of solid Northern Italian fare," according to New York Magazine, which also praised the "elegant" wood-paneled dining room.
Da Noi's chefs celebrate the subtleties of Northern Italian cuisine by tirelessly chopping fresh herbs, slicing scarlet-hued beef carpaccio, and sautéing filets of fresh sole in white wine. Da Noi's handmade pasta dishes have turned many first-time diners into regulars, but other enthusiasts return again and again for pasta-free dishes such as grilled chicken livers dressed in a tangy balsamic dressing and served over fresh field greens.
The dessert menu rubs shoulders with the cocktail program at Da Noi, and the results are lavishly indulgent. Bartenders mix and muddle ingredients such as white chocolate and fresh blueberries with potent liqueurs, and decorate shaken martinis with whimsical garnishes. Glasses of silky house-made limoncello present a careful balance of sweet and tart flavors.
Dugout Pub South tempts appetites with slow-cooked, smoked ribs, thin crust pizzas crowned with clams or deep-fried calamari, and more than 25 burgers made with 8-ounce Angus beef patties and toppings such as blue cheese, banana peppers, and house-made chili. Inside the dining area, four dartboards, a shuffleboard table, and flat-screen TVs entertain patrons sipping libations from the full bar, which features 20 different brews on tap. Live entertainment includes DJs, bands, karaoke, and wandering minstrels, tickling the ears of customers in the dining area or outside on the tiki deck.
Before he opened Daisy Dukes BBQ, appeared on the Food Network’s Chopped, and won several awards for his barbeque, pitmaster Warren Schierenbeck smoked a whole hog every day at his first joint in South Carolina. He served chopped pieces of the succulent swine with a touch of vinegar, slaw, and Mr. Pibb. Warren had loved such smoky, straightforward barbecue since his childhood, when the smell of charcoal meant a family feast of grilled chicken wings, burgers, corn, and foil-wrapped potatoes.
When he moved from South Carolina to New York, Warren brought part of the south with him—a Georgia-built tow-behind smoker. Along with some simple seasoning, he smoker lends rich flavor to each slab of ribs, mound of pulled pork, and cut of brisket. Warren serves all of his Daisy Dukes meats with sauce on the side, which lets diners decide how much to pour on their food and how much to simply rub around their mouth.
The chefs at Arirang Hibachi Steakhouse are artists, and their media are beef, blades, and fire. Behind tabletop grills, the red-hatted specialists slice and sizzle meats at lightning pace, then fill the freshly-dropped jaws of their clientele with the resulting savory cuts of sirloin and filet mignon. The hibachis cook up lobster tails, chicken, and and shrimp as well. Not everything is flaming hot, however. Arirang also boasts an impressive sushi menu, with unique offerings such as the coconut shrimp roll with raspberry puree, and their bar pours out everything from imported Japanese beer to specialty cocktails.
